Both Ian and Gillian have been lecturing to other optometrists about eyelid disease. Our advanced qualifications in eye disease and its treatment (the ‘DipTP(IP)’ after Ian and Gillian’s name) means we see a lot and know a lot about all types of eye disease including eyelids.
The eyelids form a key part of a healthy visual system and are because they are constantly on the move and exposed to the elements are prone to a whole host of conditions, some serious some benign.
Gillian spoke at the York Local Optical Society and Ian at Optometry Tomorrow, the annual conference of the College of Optometrists. Feedback was positive and a number of the audience said they now properly understood eyelids and their management for the first time in their career.
It’s a complex business so if you’ve got problems with your eyes or eyelids, come and see and expert.
